Alberto Del Rio def. Brodus Clay

Alberto Del Rio came to Raw to make a statement following his confrontation with Randy Orton on SmackDown, and make a statement he did, racking up a decisive win over Brodus Clay on Raw in Nashville.

Brodus, a power competitor, is uniquely skilled to withstand Del Rio’s patented submission game plan, but The Funky One couldn’t bulldoze his way out of The Mexican Aristocrat’s path in the Music City. Del Rio, unable to use the majority of his technical strikes, instead used Brodus’ own momentum against him in between shots to The Funkasaurus’ arm, finally stunning the big man with a kick to the head before wrenching him into the Cross Armbreaker and forcing big Brodus to submit. As his match with Orton at Hell in a Cell approaches, Del Rio is looking stronger than ever. What will Friday bring to this simmering rivalry?
